ChartDirector 6.0 (ASP/COM/VB Edition)

JsViewPortControl


The JsViewPortControl is a browser side Javascript control to let the user visualize and manipulate the viewport managed by the JsChartViewer. It needs to be used with the WebViewPortControl on the server side.

In typical usage, the JsViewPortControl displays an "overall chart" that shows the full data range, and connects to the JsChartViewer using JsViewPortControl.setViewer. It can then include a rectangle on the overall chart to represent the viewport in the JsChartViewer. The region outside the rectangle can be dimmed out to highlight the viewport region. If the viewport is updated (such as if the user clicks on the chart while in "Zoom In" mode), the rectangle will also update automatically.

To manipulate the viewport, the user can drag the rectangle to move the viewport (equivalent to scrolling). The user can also resize the viewport by dragging the border of the rectangle (equivalent to zooming), or drag a new rectangular region on the overall chart to be used as the new viewport, or click on a point on the chart to center the viewport at that point.

To use JsViewPortControl in a web page, it is necessary to include the ChartDirector Javascript Library "cdjcv.js" and other supporting files in the web page. Please refer to ChartDirector Javascript Library for details.
